Announcement: Burlington Road Races

Due to the fact that a new bridge is being constructed it is not
possible to have a finish at the usual location in downtown
Burlington. Instead of canceling all races that day, Bike Burlington
is organizing the Wapello Mediapolis Road Race as a point to point
race on Highway 99 of approximately 24 miles. It was conceived to
give novice racers the opportunity to road race within their skill
level. The race begins in Wapello proceeding south on Highway 99
turning west on H38 into Mediapolis. The terrain is gently rolling
on Highway 99. There is a five mile long climb out of the
Mississippi River Valley on the Mediapolis blacktop (H38).

This change will likely be for 2008 only baring any more road work.

Events scheduled:
5:15 pm - Category 4
5:25 pm - Masters 50+ & Masters 60+
5:35 pm - Women Category 4
5:45 pm -Category 5 & Citizens

Transportation will be available before and after the race between
Mediapolis & Wapello.
